RIM's in the middle of reconciling its traditional security concerns with consumer features that are in demand (including bluetooth support). Believe me, it's a lot better than it was in the past.
It's pretty much a known matter than transfers between devices really need to take place with a PC with Desktop Manager. Ideally, DM 4.2 with the switch device wizard.
